Nice, well-protected crimpy climbing just right of the black streak (Wet Ichies - 5.8).
Six bolts to an anchor - however, see comments on anchor condition below.
Mark giving Kara an attentive belay.

Note: On May 2, 2004, the hangers were missing from the anchors. You have two choices: i) climb a 30 foot run-out to an ice climbing anchor above the CYW anchor (fairly mellow - 5.6, but a fall could be ugly). ii) probably safer - traverse to the left to the anchors for Wet Ichies.

Yeah, wtf is up with that? Is it because the rock the anchors are in look like it could come out as a watermelon chunk if someone fell on it hard enough? I chose to go right and use the bolt from 'An 80/20 Ratio' and up to those anchors.
still no hangers as of 6-24-07

I replaced the anchors on this route today (5/31/2008). Hopefully they'll stick around this time.

Michael, thanks for replacing those! I think I'll move the anchors up another 10 feet. It's better rock and the final moves would be a lot better.
